Iwi Enviromental plan wins top award

1 min read


At the recent New Zealand Planning Institutes Annual Awards Ceremony in Hamilton, the top award, the Nancy Northcroft Supreme Best Practice Award, was won by Te Mana o Ngati Rangitihi Trust, Bay of Plenty Regional Council and Boffa Miskell Ltd for the development of the Ngati Rangitihi Iwi Environmental Management Plan.

The project was judged the best from the four major category winners selected by the New Zealand Planning Institute, the professional association representing 2,000 planners in New Zealand.

The NZPI Awards Panel considered that the 2013 recipient of this award had amply demonstrated best practice in developing an Environmental Management Plan.

The Plan is the catalyst for Ngati Rangitihi playing an active and constructive part in the enhancing of socio-economic and cultural aspects of environmental planning and resource management from the coastline of Matata to the inland lake of Tarawera and the Waikato River.

It is a first generation plan that provides practical guidance for hapu members involved in resource management. The plan is a living document and will continue to evolve in its application and guidance.

The Plan was prepared by Te Mana o Ngati Rangitihi Trust with support from a secondment from Boffa Miskell Ltd and resources from Bay of Plenty Regional Council and supported by a range of other local Councils and the Department of Conservation.
